Coming soon - Animal Grief

Animal Grief - How Animals Mourn
by David Alderton

Science is now providing some remarkable insights into animal behaviour, with crocodiles, for example, emerging as devoted parents, and elephants – like whales – able to communicate with each other across long distances by ultrasound, which is inaudible to our ears. There seems little doubt that animals experience a range of emotions, just as we do; but can they grieve, too ...?

Evidence exists that, indeed, they can: in addition, David Alderton –  award-winning, multi-million specialist animal author – contends that emotions – including grief – can potentially have a survival value for a species.

The authoritative, rational text is superbly supported by interesting, sensitive photographs carefully chosen to be reflective of the subject matter.

Our groundbreaking new book, Animal Grief, is available soon from the Hubble & Hattie website, priced at £9.99 (plus p+p). You can find out more here!

Kelly takes fame in her stride!

Kelly, the star of Hubble & Hattie's new book Dieting with my Dog by Peggy Frezon is clearly settling into the limelight! In these photos sent to us by Peggy, Kelly's clearly taking it all in her stride...

Kelly makes her mark in Dieting with my Dog!

 Join Frezon and Kelly on their journey to weight loss with a wag. Dieting With My Dog celebrates our close bonds with our pets in times of both need and triumph. This book is for anyone who has ever loved a pet – through thick and thin.

I wonder if that chair has her name on the back...

The veterinarian rubbed Kelly’s sides for emphasis. “She needs to lose weight. If not ...” Peggy Frezon recognized the list of serious ailments that followed. It was the same one her own doctor had given her.
Dieting With My Dog is the honest and heartfelt story of how one overweight woman and her chubby spaniel struggled to get fit and healthy together. Theirs was a comfortable routine. While Frezon’s children were flying the nest, her loyal rescue pup snuggled close. Sneaking M&Ms from her secret stash, she would slip Kelly extra doggy cookies too. Why not? Food is love. But then, Kelly became the motivating factor that led Frezon to face down the physical and emotional reasons for her overeating, and for overfeeding her dog. She learned that embracing change is healthy, and everything is easier with unconditional love.

You can get your copy of Dieting with my Dog today from the Hubble and Hattie website!
